Subsidy Engine

A perk that shows employees they matter

Great places to work offer their teams help with buying food at work. Partial or full lunch subsidies increase morale, add excitement about being on site, and grow workplace community engagement. With Fooda, you can have authentic restaurant food served in-house by trained and certified staff. Employers are often surprised by the affordability of our program, which is modeled on a cost-per-use basis.

Subsidies encourage staff to be together in person

By incorporating a subsidy into their food programs, organizations benefit from higher in-person attendance, higher retention and recruitment rates, and more employee engagement through the communal experience of sharing meals.

Fooda subsidies are Flexible and Affordable

Since Fooda's subsidy program is modeled on a per-use basis, employers only pay for team members who are being served lunch on a given day. Easily increase, or decrease subsidies to adjust for new situations, like population changes that happen each day, week, or month.

Admins use the Fooda for Business portal to self-manage subsidies directly for teams and individuals. It's full control in real time, which our clients appreciate.

Subsidies are easy for your teams to redeem

To claim their subsidy, your employees simply need a Fooda account using their work email. To verify identify and usage, employees easily show their QR code in the Fooda App when they check out at a Popup or Food Hall. When placing a mobile order, subsidies are automatically applied.

Your lunch subsidy supports local restaurants

The social movement to support local restaurants has never been stronger. Communities are empathetic to the fact that restaurants have gone through rough times. A great way to help restore local restaurant business is to provide the opportunity for them to serve your team.
